    When his whole team was laughing at how good his roast was

  4. What are the blurred data points at the top of the charts? TR3?

  5. TravisFabel says:

    please dont insult Ferrets this way. They are not weasels or intel.

  6. Intel: 10980XE
    Me: 7980XE v3

  7. Who's here after the AMD 5950x release?

  8. Anyone here after CoVID screwed with AMDs claim and pushed Zen 3 to End of 2020?

  9. Ryan Berry says:

    come to see if its worth a jump to the i9-10980XE from my I7-7740x and all i hear is bitching -_-

  10. mario kart says:

    I love the blurred 3rd gen threadripper results on the comparison charts

  11. rsx123 says:

    Can someone explain to me who knows nothing about this exactly what intel did here lmao?

  12. Higher than expected?! YOU DESIGNED AND MADE THE FUCKING THING!!!

  13. If you're like me and don't care about a BS marketing rant jump to 3:12

  14. Gino Burgio says:

    @2:42 we are looking at a Black Footed Ferret and not in fact a weasel in case you all were wondering 🙂

  15. Raze says:

    You know amd won after this video came out

  16. 2:55 only if mcfly was working for intel

  17. BeerGrills says:

    As all of the top engineers are saying: Intel is run by nothing but MBAs now. There is not a single engineer making decisions at the top. Andy Grove must be steaming from the grave

  18. El Sapo says:

    You know your in trouble when Linus ignores a pun (3:14)
